[Tutorial] Mod Organizer - Installation of SKSE v1

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I have a question for you.

I have problems with NMM (I already asked, another topic) so if I do not get answers I need this other information for MO.

 

I have previously installed the mod that included animation with MO.

The mods were installed properly but when I used FNIS to record animations in the game, FNIS not find the animations.

 

Basically I installed mod properly but without animations.

When using NMM instead, animations are normally found from FNIS

 

 

Can you tell me what's the problem?

You ran FNIS through MO correct? (launched it). Otherwise it will not see any mods or animations and return clean.

I have no idea if you are a man or a woman...

 

But I am so happy I could kiss your right now! Many people may have a handle on how to do this but they are HORRID teachers and make things seem like hebrew when they explain it to no pro's. You did not do that. You kept it simple and easy to understand.

 

THANK YOU!

The Mod Tutorial – Installation of SKSE

Scope of tutorial:

  • Cover the basic installation of SKSE from download to installation as well as load order configuration in MO.
  • This tutorial only covers the installation into MO if you wish MO to control the conflicts with scripts that SKSE installs. ( advised)
  • Still needs to have the correct files installed into the Skyrim folder manually. (everything but the data folder.) Drag and drop into the same folder where you see TESV and "Data" folder.
  • Drag and drop into the same folder where you see TESV and "Data" folder.

Requirements:

It is assumed for this tutorial that you have a functional installation of Skyrim and Mod Manager ( MO ).

Step one: Download

  • Download SKSE.  Current version as this tutorial is 1.7.1.
  • Select the 7z archive version
  • For this tutorial I am saving it to the desktop. You can save it anywhere just remember where you downloaded it.

Step two: Installation

  • Open MO.
  • Click on the top left icon that looks like a CD. Select that and then click “Open”. You should see the program name to the left of the “Open button”.
  • Now a new windows opens and is giving a warning “No game data on top level”. 
  • This indicates that the structure of the install folder is wrong and MO doesn’t know what to do with it. If it is installed like this SKSE won’t work. We need to make some changes. This is because there are files in the SKSE download that you don't need.
  • One thing I like to do is go to the top drop down menu where you see SKSE and rename it to a name that is easy to remember and manage For this tutorial I am using Skyrim Script Extender (SKSE v 1.07) as the name.
  • Click on the file and expand.
  • Right click on the “Data” folder and “Set Data Directory
  • Now you have a comment on the bottom of that window “Looks good”.
  • Select “OK” button to the right of that and the mod will be installed.

Step three: Fixing the Load order.

  • Drag that file up to where you want it or change the "Priority" number to where you want it in the order.

Step four: Use SKSE

  • You are now ready to use that tool that you just installed. Make sure you use the “SKSE” option left of the “Run” button.

Step five: Praise MO

  • Yea MO!!!!

 

well tried it with version 1.7.3 and now MO can't find the skse exe. file so it won't run. maybe they your version of MO is different, that made no sense to me :/ 

Going to put it back in the skyrim root folder to make it work again.

It is working for me. I am however using the MO 32bit not the new 64bit MO.

You can also use the drop down and find the SKSE executable and manually add it.

 

Also if you moved MO from the Skyrim Root folder to somewhere else you need to tell MO where it is.. along with the mods and other files needed for MO to run.

Settings, click Advanced, then find the folders. After you might have to manually setup SKSE.

 

Just in case.. to be sure... SKSE has to be installed in the Skyrim Root folder with the Data from it installed in MO.

To perhaps clarify a bit what Ritual is saying: just the .dll and exe files in the SKSE package MUST be installed in the official Skyrim folder.

 

You install ONLY the data-folder in the SKSE package with MO.

Yes.. this tutorial only covered the actual install using MO

The  rest someoen needs to know what to install into the main folder or as Vachnic states above. the"official" Skyrim folder. If you don't do that step.. then MO will not find SKSE as the .dll file will not be available. Perhaps this is what happened? Only did the MO step..
